 kUBOTA VS NEW HOLLAND

Does anyone have an educated opinion about the differences between kubota and new holland mid 30 horse tractors?
I am of the mind to buy the Kubota Grand L 30 34 horse with cab.
Then an excavator friend suggested New Holland.
Your thoughts please.

in my opion just look at the rear axle housings on the two. kubota is much heaver and less axle sticking out past bearing to bend. just my two cents.

My opinion is the dealer is as important as the equipment, maybe more. If one dealer is better than the other then I'd shop there.

Just my personal preference from my personal experience and from that of others. In this order: Deere, Kubota, Kioti, and New Holland. Not bad mouthing any but just my preference. I might even consider a Challenger once I learn more about them. They all break at one time or another but some more than others. Search the olders posts and get a feel for it.

Your friend may have experience with the larger New Hollands. From my discussions with excavators and tractor mechanics I think the NH555 and newer NH655 which are based on the older Ford are hard to beat. I am not sure the smaller CUT carry the excavator as well. I would look throught the posts there have been some reports of mechanical failures.
From all discussions the Kubota L21-L35-L48 are hard to beat in the compact hoes. I am not sure how the grand L matches up as I have not seen a grand L with hoe. I suspect that they have retained some of the features of the TLB series. You need Murf and Art Whites opinions as they have exerience with both models.

I dunno. This is a case where the dealer makes the difference.

In billy_r's case the dealer should go to bat for him and deal with NH. If NH won't deal with it then at least there should be a clear explanation of why (if they claim it's abuse they should back it up). If NH won't do anything then a good dealer would either eat the expense your meet you part way.

I've read a few instances of Kubota denying in-warranty claims for seemingly BS reasons as well. In these cases the dealer can make a huge difference.

I have both available only the NH is in red. My preference for most all is with the Kubota. The NH has some different creature comforts that some perfer but the Kubota is the benchmark for all for reliability.
